Automotive Tips from Rusty's Garage: Tire Replacement Overview

Tires are an expensive purchase, so knowing when tires should be replaced is important for The Woodlands drivers. Tires will just wear out with normal use. The depth of the tread on your tire determines how well it will stop, start and steer – especially in wet conditions. 4/32th of an inch (3.2 mm) of tire tread is considered a safe amount of tread.Uneven tread wear can be a symptom of other problems, and simply replacing your tires will not prevent the same uneven wear from happening to the new tires. At Rusty's Garage in The Woodlands, we can inspect your tires for excessive or uneven wear. Unusual wear may lead to further inspection of steering, suspension or alignment problems. We can help with necessary repairs and with getting you the right tires for your needs.Give us a call.Rusty's Garage25143 MELDA RDThe Woodlands, Texas 773808324958270http://rustys-garage.com

Tire Maintenance in The Woodlands

With the recent focus in the The Woodlands area on improving fuel economy, we've been told how important it is to maintain our tire pressure.The Woodlands drivers know that tires wear out, but we want to make them last as long as possible because they're not cheap to replace. In addition to saving gas, properly inflated tires last longer. Underinflated tires will wear out more quickly.Some people in The Woodlands wonder if they should add a few extra pounds of pressure when they fill up their tires. Bad idea. In fact, there are very good reasons not to overinflate your tires. For one, the middle of the tread will wear unevenly because the full tread is not contacting the road properly. That also adversely affects your handling. Stop by Rusty's Garage to see about tire maintenance for your vehicle.
